gone fishin'.

Yep. That is what we did today with the kiddo's. The Okaloosa Island Pier had their 5th Annual Rodeo Roundup for kids. The kids were given rods, reels, bait and t-shirts. The weather was beautiful, the kids were all healthy and in great moods and we ran into good friends. What more could someone ask for. There were a lot of people on the pier but it wasn't overly crowded.

The water was very clear and we were even able to see several dolphins jumping while we were out there. The kids thought that was great!

What a great view. Seriously, I know I complain about the humidity and the fact that we are in Florida but when we have weekends like this and see how truly beautiful it is, a little part of me can't help but admit that I like it here. :)

The kids were very patient waiting for the "bite". Or at least as patient as they could be. Had to check to see if the bait was missing once in a while.

Jacob even tried his hand at it. I think our biggest fear was that he was going to toss the rod over the banister. He did great though!

And then there was the big moment!!! AJ caught his first fish! OK - so it was only a little bottom feeder but hey - he caught a fish!!! He was so proud of himself but who could blame him.

What a great start to a beautiful weekend! I hope you have a wonderful weekend too!
